The Board expressed its concern about the weakening of government engagement and MSG oversight in Liberia. Following a review in accordance with Requirement 8.6, the Board found that Liberia has made inadequate progress in implementing requirements related to government engagement (1.1), the multi-stakeholder group (1.4) and the work plan (1.5). Progress in implementing Requirement 1.3 on civil society engagement and Requirement 1.2 on company engagement is considered meaningful.
